Governor Lee Kinyanjui joins Jubilee party
Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has quit Ubuntu party and joined the ruling outfit, Jubilee.
Through his Facebook post on Friday, April 1, 2022, for the first time, Governor said he will defend his seat using President Uhuru Kenyatta’s led party.
He said that before he made the decision, he held consultations with President Uhuru Kenyatta and members of Ubuntu party.
“To consolidate Azimio Coalition support base and lead the campaign team in the region, a decision has arrived that I defend my Governor seat on Jubilee Party ticket. I, therefore, wish to state that I will defend my seat as Nakuru Governor on the Jubilee ticket,” Kinyanjui said.
Nonetheless, the Nakuru county executive stated that the Ubuntu Peoples Forum (UPF) will field and support candidates for other positions in accordance with its mandate.
Kinyanjui stated that they will now campaign as the Azimio la Umoja team for the August 9 polls.
He stated that they will run one candidate for each seat to ensure that their votes are not split.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
